Finer Things Friday: Signs of Spring

Could it be?

We’re trading hot chocolate for smoothies

and snow boots for bare toes.

Instead of begging to go sledding, the kids are begging to go swimming (in 50° weather).

Barring any end-of-March-blizzards, dare I say it’s almost spring!  And that, my friends, is a very fine thing.

  1. I am loving the sunshine in between our rain here too! I am so ready for spring! Have a sunshine filled weekend!!

  2. What cute pictures — they definitely give me spring fever! Season changes are always so exciting, especially when it’s from cool to warm(er). Enjoy the sunny weekend!

    P.S. This is my first time doing the Finer Things Friday, I hope I did it correctly. What an awesome way to help us all remember what really matters in life. 🙂

  3. You are not kidding it’s a fine thing. WOW, the sunshine never looked so good. That first pic of your kids eating smoothies LOOKS like summertime. I’ll come back and look at that pic each time I need a “fix”. Since it’s still only March, I’m sure I’ll need a few of those.

  4. Our weather is getting a little warmer too, we still have about 8″ of snow on the ground, but I think it will be gone soon. I hope 🙂
    Thanks for hosting!

  5. Where do you live? It’s still in the 30’s here in North East Ohio. 🙁 But it was sunny and felt “kinda” warm compared to what it has been! We Ohioans break out the shorts once the weather hits 40! 🙂

  6. Today was wonderful! 😀 Big change from Monday, huh?! LOL! I definitely hope it is here to stay.

  7. I stopped by from Internet Cafe’s Top and i are in the same category. I have been so blessed at the diversity of those in each category! I love your blog and I must say this post was like a warm breeze! I too am ready to trade snow boots and winter coats for bare toes and shorts!!! 🙂
    What a fun post and a sweet blog!

  8. We’ve had a couple of those days this week, too, and it’s SO exciting! We spent nearly 2 hours outside yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. We will probably have a couple more snow storms, but this has been such a nice break from the frigid temps! And the sunshine has helped all of our attitudes quite a bit!

  9. All I can say is it’s about time the sun came out…..I honestly don’t think I’ve seen it here in KY in weeks! It’s supposed to beautiful and warmer today, Yay!! I am so much more inspired when the sun is out. 🙂
    Come visit me at my blog sometime when you get a sec!
    Happy Friday!

  10. We saw mostly grass at the beginning in the week, but just when I thought our Canadian winter was over, it got cold and snowy again. Thankfully, the forecast shows 9 degrees again for tomorrow (that’s about 48 F) so here’s hoping…!

  11. Oh, I wish! We still have lots of snow, but I have high hopes that it will all melt this weekend. It should be in the 40’s all weekend.

  12. Kristin says:

    Spring is most definitely a finer thing! I can’t wait to put some seeds in the ground for fresh herbs and produce!

  13. The sun shining is definitely a finer thing (and the snow is melting- yay!!)

  14. Oh my….I absolutely LOVE the toes picture! How adorable! I’d consider framing it!
    When my home burned down last year, I decided life was too short to have too serious of a home, along with the decor. I had my kids paint pics and framed them and hung them up. I think your pic deserves consideration too! 🙂

  15. Eating smoothies on the porch seems just heavenly!! And those bare toes make me excited about getting my flip flops out!! I can’t wait for warm days!!

  16. Just enjoying the sunshine and listening to the birds sing means Spring is on the way and that is definitely a “finer thing”.

  17. I can’t wait for spring to come here!!

  18. Oh girl…we ARE almost there but not quite…I think it is 40 degrees here in Ontario Canada..but hey,,they sun is shining and the snow is MELTING..Yahoooooo..

    congrats on being nominated top 100

  19. The weather is turning gorgeous here, too! But I live in Florida, so I can’t really complain about having had a bad winter. 🙂

  20. LOVE the cute bare toes outside. To me, THAT is the best sign of Spring there is!

  21. I love Spring. Last week was beautiful here too, I actually enjoyed being outside. I love this time of year.

  22. I love, love, LOVE the toes picture!!!!!!!!!
